Also in Solstice
One of the exceptions to my don't buy yarn without a project in mind rule is Solstice. With a bag or three in my stash, I was thrilled when Solstice appeared in not just one, but two of our new pattern booklets.
The new dedicated pattern booklet is Boardwalk. Pictured on the left are Rising Sun, a sleeveless top with mock turtleneck designed by Tabetha Hedrick, and Midday, a zippered cardigan with a relaxed fit designed by Jill Wright. (Both are on the cover of Boardwalk, modeled by best friends and also designed by another pair of best friends – how cool is that!?). Center is Daydream by Deb Newton, a colorblock, deep V-neck pullover with half sleeves. On the right is Promenade, a body hugging tunic with surplice bodice and mesh stitch body designed by Laura Zukaite.
Year Round is the second booklet to feature Solstice. The sweaters in this booklet are designed for year round wear, knit in wool/cotton blends and styled for both warm and cool temperatures in season-spanning colors.
Anne (modeled in gold) is a raglan cardigan with an A-line
silhouette that can be worn open or closed. Diana (modeled in blue) is a drop shoulder pullover adorned with columns of leaf lace and subtle scalloped hem. You may recognize the duo from the back cover of the most recent issue of knit.wear.
